FS524 - Unsentimental Peony

This week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper is Beverly Sue Wilson. I chose this card from her gallery as my inspiration:

I focused on Beverly Sue's:
-large flower

I changed:
-no black
-no sentiment

I sponged a panel with Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn, keeping the darker colours to the edges of the panel to create the 'glow'. I spritzed with water for some texture.

I stamped and embossed the flower before watercolouring it with Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Candied Apple. I used a coordinating die to cut it out and then I popped it up on the green panel.

I used:
-Essentials by Ellen Mondo Peony
